Our help is focused on the poorest families in a tough accessible areas of Sri Lanka, for example the high mountain area of Nuwara Eliya.
For these families we help to organize mainly food, clothing and a medical care. Our priorities consist of improving the life standard of the poorest people, providing them with medical care with long term overlap and providing education for the illiterate people. For example people from the poor families attend the women monastery “Sakyadhita“ that is supported by us. In this women monastery people can get the food, drinking water and education for free.

Story of family
A mother came with a small two year old boy Disal Teejan to the monastery Olabudowa. They bought a property there. Not yet born boy lost his father when his mother was in the second month of pregnancy with him. They were very poor and the mother had to work from the morning till the night. The son almost did not see his mother and the majority of his time he spent in a monastery. We supported the family in the first years to enable them to have the basic necessaries of life (food, clothing).
The venerable found a small boy Sudese Danusku during her pindapāta walk (nun and monk walk and wait to get some food). He was about 8 years old and he was
found alone at home. He was illitarate. He did not know how to speak. The venerable took him to the monastery. She started to teach him how to speak to enable him to start to attend a school. We bought school gadgets for him and we were supporting the boy in the initial years.
A deaf boy with a name Sujit Kumara. His mother did not have money. Sujit had to attend a school with mentally disabled children. The venerable bough a hearing aid
gadget to enable the boy to learn to communicate.
In a period of time he improved himself to a great extend.
Dharma Dassa family
A woman with three children and with a badly sick husband lived in a tumbledown shed. The husband was dying because of leukemia sickness. The woman cultivated and took care of the vegetable crop. She could do sewing, too. Early in the morning she would go with her half year old child to Colombo to sell staff and she returned late in the evening. At home there would be staying and waiting four year old girl, eight year old girl and ten year old boy. The older eight year old girl had to take care of their sick father and the house hold. The family suffered with denutrition (athrepsia). For several years
the family was provided with a support in form of rice,
small toys for the children and basic necessities.
